"Patterns" is a song written by Paul Simon and included on his 1965 album
The Paul Simon Songbook, and later recorded by Simon and Garfunkel on
their third album, Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme. The lyrics are about
how life is a labyrinthine maze, following patterns that are difficult to
unravel or control although we are trapped in them.
Warrel Dane included a heavy metal cover of the song on his 2008 album
Praises to the War Machine.
Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme is an album by Simon & Garfunkel,
released in the United States on October 10, 1966. Its name comes from the
second line of the album's first track, "Scarborough Fair/Canticle", an
English folk song from the 16th century, paired with a counter-melody and
text about a soldier. It peaked on the U.S. charts at #4. The album was
produced by Bob Johnston as Columbia Records LP CL 2563 (mono); CS 9363
(stereo); CD CK 9363; Remastered CD CK 66001.
"Homeward Bound" -- appearing as the fourth song in the American version --
was excluded from the album upon its release in the United Kingdom, since
it had already appeared on the UK release of Sounds of Silence.
The album can be seen as having a protest element in it: the closing song,
"7 O'Clock News/Silent Night" featured an the overlaid sound of a news
bulletin describing murders and the calling out of the National Guard in
the United States, containing also clips from a news broadcast about the
Vietnam War. Based on the fact that the broadcast carries the news of the
death of comedian Lenny Bruce that day, it can be dated from August 3,
In 2003, the album was ranked number 201 on Rolling Stone magazine's list
of the 500 greatest albums of all time.
Simon and Garfunkel's first reunion since their second breakup was at a June 1972 benefit concert at Madison Square Garden for presidential candidate George McGovern. On October 18, 1975 the duo made an appearance on the second ever episode of NBC's Saturday Night Live. They performed "The Boxer", "Scarborough Fair", and "My Little Town". The last song was the first and only new Simon and Garfunkel recording in five years, appearing on both men's solo albums released in 1975 (Simon's Still Crazy After All These Years and Garfunkel's Breakaway, respectively) and reaching #9 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart.
Simon, along with James Taylor, provided harmony vocals on Garfunkel's cover of Sam Cooke's "Wonderful World", from the 1977 album Watermark; the recording reached #1 on the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart and #17 on the Hot 100. Simon also contributed backing vocals to "In Cars", a song from Garfunkel's 1981 solo album Scissors Cut.
Simon and Garfunkel reunited for a free concert in New York City's Central Park on September 19, 1981. The concert was attended by over 500,000 people, and a recording of it was subsequently released as a live album, with their cover of "Wake Up Little Susie" released as a single. A video recording was likewise televised by HBO and issued on home video. The success of the Central Park concert prompted the duo to go on a world tour in 1982--1983.
Simon and Garfunkel even completed their first new studio album in more than a decade, provisionally titled Think Too Much and featuring some songs previewed on their recent concert jaunt. However, creative differences (coupled with the record company's negative reaction to the decidedly un-Simon-and-Garfunkel-like album) led Simon to remove Garfunkel's vocal tracks and rework the songs himself. The 1983 Simon solo album Hearts and Bones was the result, and a long period of estrangement for the duo followed.
Their next joint public appearance was in 1990, when the two performed at a ceremony for their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Simon and Garfunkel appeared together in 1993 for 21 sold out concerts in New York, with half of the show being Paul Simon solo with a band and the other half Simon and Garfunkel. Later the same year, they did some charity concerts, including the Bridge School Benefit concerts and a benefit for United Way Children's Charities at SkyDome in Toronto.
In July 2002, Columbia Legacy issued a previously unreleased live recording of a Simon and Garfunkel concert, Live from New York City, 1967. It features an almost-complete recording of a performance given by the duo at Philharmonic Hall, at Lincoln Center in New York City on January 22, 1967. The album includes a rendition of "A Church Is Burning", one of the songs that originally appeared on Paul Simon's solo album, The Paul Simon Songbook.
